Evil Dead: The Game – All Demonic Units, Ranked
In Evil Dead: The Game, the forces of evil have many ways to slow down and ultimately kill the four survivors – whether through traps, demonic possession and their most powerful weapon, hordes of demons and of monsters.
Evil units have a lot of variation within their own armies – not to mention differences between factions, led by boss units Henrietta, Evil Ash, and Eligos. These differences lead one to wonder which of these terrors are better than the others. Here are all the demonic units, ranked, to help you rip your mortal opponents to shreds.
ten Death Berserker
These volatile punk rockers are some of the sleekest units employed by the Kandarian Demon, but unfortunately looking cool isn’t the name of the game. When it comes to utility, Berserkers lag behind their kin .
While they’re capable foot soldiers, their unique ability to self-destruct just isn’t useful enough, given the cost of summoning them to begin with – especially since most survivors can just dodge the blast. . Tearing off their heads and turning them into grenades does a lot of damage, but it’s still a gamble
9 Mortality Elite
Bigger is better, one might think. While these beefy lumberjacks can indeed bring the pain, the meta means they’re an ineffective choice. The prevailing demonic tactic is to find survivors early and harass them into rushing towards their objectives, instead of fighting. This means that their high cost and low number of appearances make them unfavorable to purchase. The fact that they are a bit slow is also a big disadvantage, especially against hunters who excel at keeping their distance.
They have cool things going for them, like when they land a punch, it hurts. If you’re lucky, they can also spawn with an ax to really hurt.
8 Elite Skeleton
The Necromancer’s Skeleton Elite suffers from the same issues as the Deadite Elite, namely being slow and expensive. But they’re also just a bit faster. They don’t deal as much damage, but their varied skills – ranged attack and area of effect attack – make up for the difference with more flexibility in combat. Shields are also a good defensive boost, although temporary.
However, what puts them way ahead of their meaty brethren is that they can be affected by the Bone Rage skill, which is the only way to cause units not in your possession to attack more often. .
Foot soldiers of the Warlord’s army and iconic antagonists of the Evil Dead series, the Deadites are proof that just because you’re basic doesn’t mean you’re useless. They have below average defense and damage, but their decent speed and deceptively flexible kit means they are not to be underestimated.
For starters, they can spawn with an axe, which gives them a significant damage boost – and even if they don’t, they can use the hilariously named ability “Farewell To Arms” to rip out their own appendages and you. fight to death with them. But their most terrifying – and disgusting – ability is to squirt vomit.
Choosing between Deadites and Skeletons is a bit tricky, as a lot of positives are shared between the two. Skeletons have the same speed, but have more defensive stats. Their skills are more damage-focused than the Deadites’ utility abilities, giving them damaging AoE knockback and a long-range charge.
Ultimately, what gives the Skeleton a leg up is that when unpossessed, it will attack more often than its Warlord counterpart if you choose to take advantage of the Bone Rage perk.
5 Skeleton flautist
The Skeleton Flutist is a non-combatant who spends his entire “life” playing a cheerful tune, doing no damage, before being torn to pieces by Survivors. So why is he so high in the rankings?
Having one in play turns your army into a bunch of killing machines, giving them a significant offensive boost and a decent defensive boost as well. At least the survivors will get out of position to hunt them down.
These guys are a pain in the ass for survivors to deal with and a joy to control. They can clone themselves on a relatively short cooldown and rain down lightning on their enemies, both of which can be upgraded early in the Puppeteer skill tree. While Lightning is surprisingly easy to dodge, having enough Demi-Eligoses around means that with good timing and a bit of luck, you can land consecutive strikes that are much harder to dodge. Add to that the fact that they’re gun-resistant, and you’ve got yourself a potentially deadly parasite.
But what puts them ahead of the other Elites? They’re not slow, so they’re also a good (if a bit expensive) way to harass Survivors on the move.
The folks at Saber Interactive have done a good job of making each boss unique, but of the same power level. So when ranking these powerhouses, it comes down to reliability and how most Survivors choose to play.
Unfortunately, this puts Eligos lower than the other two because, as powerful as he is, he’ll likely fall the quickest of them all. His abilities are useful, especially his AoE stun, but their cooldowns are just a tad too long.
His normal attacks, while intimidating, sometimes fall flat, giving survivors plenty of openings to take advantage of his relatively weak defenses. This is mitigated by his ability to turn invisible while moving, but that means you’re stuck waiting for your cooldown to expire, which isn’t much fun.
Henrietta is a fearsome adversary whose diverse kit, solid stats, and terrible stench allow her to control the flow of battles – worthy of the title Warlord.
Her high defense, combined with her punishing attack, means fighting her will always hurt, especially if you apply a bad influence. Tactical use of Gas Leak and Granny Hug – the hardest hold to break in the game, means that once someone is in your zone of control, they will have a hard time getting out. Anyone but the toughest warriors will likely take a beating if they try to match him any closer.
Henrietta’s only weak point is her low speed, which means she is not good at chasing and harassing survivors. That’s good, because the best time to deploy it is when the survivors have to stick around and fight anyway.
1 evil ash
Evil Ash is a skilled fighter who can dodge like a Survivor, which, combined with his robust stat line and ability to grab, means he’s pretty hard to kill.
Although barely shy of Henrietta’s raw power and durability, he stands out thanks to his abilities. True to his Necromancer moniker, he can summon and revive skeletons. Combined with a well-placed flautist, he can end up leading an unstoppable and imperishable skeleton army against the survivors. Hail to the king, baby.
